… is beautifully splendid.
My camera came my second day back after Csehy.
We went to a farm to harvest some lavender, and took lots of pictures of beautiful flowers.
We went thrifting with Hannah. She wanted us all to get matching red blazers… but we just took a picture.
The next morning we went to the street fair a thrift store in town. I found an old dress at the thrift store and Hannah proved herself to be the queen of getting free stuff.
We went to the highland games:
Heard lots of music
Talked with some Civil War reenactors.
… and did not get beaten, chopped, and made into haggis.
We celebrated Cait’s birthday with Joel’s family
Went running on misty mornings
I stayed at the Elwells to help Aunt Kathryn for a few days
Goofed off with cousins.
Colored all over gramma’s old counters with Sharpies
… then we went to the beach
The house across the road from ours, which was my favorite.
Part of “our” house
Daddy found a sea cucumber or something and was using it as a whip
This kitchen was amazing – 3 1/2 ovens, 2 coffee pots, 2 dishwashers, 2 blenders… lots of gadgets.
Of course I brought my cloak…
We straightened my hair
And ate lots of food
And built sandcastles
And celebrated birthdays
Hannah and I went down to the beach one morning, just us two, to talk, walk, and take pictures.
We stopped at the rainforest on the way to Miss Nellie’s.
It was really beautiful, and Nate especially enjoyed it – he wants to be a lumberjack.
At Miss Nellie’s.
Denim – loyal dog.
Back in Enumclaw we went flying with daddy
All of us kids got to fly some!
… then packed up and went home.
